“Dog hair don’t care!”

Hi! My name is Jennifer. I grew up with dogs mostly smaller dogs like Poodles and Shih Tzu’s. As an adult I’ve owned 2 Rhodesian Ridgebacks who both lived to be 12 1/2 years old. My current dog is a mixed breed dog who I rescued 3 years ago. Walking, exercising, and socializing my pets has always been a huge priority for me. I look forward to taking your dog out so he or she can get the proper exercise they need.

Hi! My name is Dan, and I love dogs. I'm not allowed to have one of my own with my allergic roommate, so I signed up with Wag! to get my fill. I'm very good with dogs of all types (they love me too) and have been through First-Aid training in both animals and humans, as well as being an experienced walker. I can't wait to meet your special friend.

I'm very compassionate about all animals and I am not prejudice against any breed. They are all worth loving. I have even rescued some. I have been walking and sitting fur babies for a few years now and i love it!! I will walk your fur children, run them and take them to grooming or doctor appointments that you can not make yourself. I will even take them to a dog park or beach, if you desire. I assure you 100% that I will love and take care of your babies as if they were my own.

“Healthy Living for Dogs. Exercise and fresh air !”

I have grown up and cherished many dogs in my life. I am experienced with senior and small dogs going at their pace. However, I am really good with big energetic dogs because I will run them until they are exhausted. I am an athletic woman who loves to run, hike, surf and be in nature. I think it is important for both people and pets to spend time outdoors in the fresh air getting physical exercise for a healthier body and mind. Let me cherish and have fun with your fur baby.

Dog Boarding in San Clemente

Named the “Best Place to Adopt a Pet” by the Orange Coast Magazine, the Pet Project Foundation is a humane rescue in partnership with the San Clemente-Dana Point Animal Shelter. A group of concerned citizens who called themselves FOSCA for Friends of San Clemente Animals started the Pet Project Foundation in the early 1980’s. The foundation expanded to partner with Dana Point to accept animals in need of rescue in 1996. 

With 25,000 volunteer hours and donations surmounting to $400,00 for animal care, the Foundation placed 700 animals into loving homes during 2015.  No adoptable animal will ever be euthanized at this shelter. Every animal receives a warm bed, veterinary care, healthy food plus daily socialization and exercise. 

The compassion is extended to animals with special needs who may need unique medical care or ongoing socialization. Prospective pet parents are guided to consider their ability to provide their pet with the time, care, and socialization that will make for a healthy and lasting bond. The quarterly newsletter, Wagging Tails, celebrates loving adoptions with pictures of pets and people happily united, showcases pets needing homes and features volunteers. 

The shelter sponsors fund-raising events such as Santa Paws Pet Photos, Gifts of Love, Barks and Brews, and wine tastings. The Tail of Two Cities Annual Gala Wild West Hoedown! is their largest annual fundraiser. “Yippee-Yowl” up a good time by dressing  in your best western wear to dine and party at the Bella Collina Towne and Golf Club each September.

Rails to Trails

0

The San Clemente Pedestrian Beach Trail hugs the picturesque shoreline of Southern California. The trail parallels the rail from the North Metro and leads pedestrians and their puppers between the rails, beach and cliffs full of natural flora. The trail will lead to a bridge that serves as a boardwalk over sensitive beach habitat. The trail will take you to the Pier Bowl trailhead where there are shops, restaurants, and picnic areas. The trail is groomed but unpaved and narrow in parts. One reviewer described this trail as too perfect to be true! Both human and dog will excite at the sunshine, sights, sounds, and smells of the trains, ocean, and life along the way.
